Thanks For All Your Help Now Get Out! Staff and parents at the town’s privately run Footprints Nursery in Masefield Road have been left reeling after Hartlepool Council gave them just 28 days notice to quit the premises. For the Few, Not the Many The Labour/Tory coalition controlling Hartlepool Council have voted themselves a 31% pay increase. The move comes as public sector workers remain tied to an annual 1% and many in the private sector are being forced to accept even less. The increase, which was recommended by an Independent Remuneration Panel, was voted through by 17 Labour councillors with the help of all 3 Conservative councillors. Headland Carnival Thursday 3rd August to Saturday 12th August This year’s Headland Carnival starts on Thursday, 3rd August with the opening of the Town Moor Fair.

The video is available from 160 York Road and is priced at £6. Council Writes Off £358,483 of Morton’s Unpaid Business Rates Hartlepool Borough Council has written off more than £358,000 in Business Rates, the equivalent of a 1% council tax increase, owed to them by ‘businessman’ Brian Morton. The unpaid debts are spread across four of Morton’s companies: Tees Leisure Ltd; Johnnor Developments Ltd; Seaton Leisure Ltd and Clockwise Leisure Ltd which between them cover the ownership of the Hillcarter Hotel, the Staincliffe Hotel and the Seaton Sports Domes. Morton has dissolved or liquidated companies covering the Hillcarter Hotel, the Staincliffe Hotel and the Sports Domes only to relaunch them under a new company name immediately afterwards, each time leaving a trail of unpaid creditors and staff. Labour Make Cranney Town’s Representative for Culture In a move which brought tears of laughter to the public gallery at Tuesday’s council meeting, Labour have voted Kevin Cranney to be the town’s representative for Culture on the Tees Valley Combined Authority. It took several minutes for the public gallery to recover its composure as Chairman, Rob Cook, struggled to regain control. Cranney, who has yet to master all 26 letters of the alphabet, has gained notoriety over the years for his 26 short-lived companies, his highly imaginative approach to accounting and his now infamous and misogynistic ‘have I slept with you’ remark to a grandmother which made the national news. The resulting complaints forced the council to send him on a Diversity Training Course. The councillor’s CV can also boast of a five-year ban on being a Director of any company, a breach of Environment Agency regulations and defaulting on a £115,000 Government backed loan. Groundhog Day Linked to the above story it’s perhaps timely to remind everyone where we’ve already been. The picture to the left is taken from the pages of the Hartlepool Mail from the late 1990s as the then Labour Leader of Hartlepool Council, the late Bryan Hanson ceremoniously opened a revamped Church Street. The project was part of the £37m City Challenge  scheme and was intended to give Church Street a Mediterranean style which would attract new visitors to the town. It involved the refurbishment of several buildings and their frontage which had fallen into disrepair, the laying of block paving, the planting of several trees and the construction of a glass canopy on one side of the street. The present Labour Council expect work to begin soon on its own £7.35m scheme to once again ‘regenerate’ Church Street, This time the claim is it will ‘redefine the Church Street area with additional daytime uses, an improved environment and a vibrant creative industries economy.’

Council Video Shows How They Voted on Massive 31% Increase They put it off as long as they could but now, after 4 weeks of waiting, the longest it has ever taken to release a video of a council meeting, Hartlepool Council has finally got around to releasing the footage of the meeting in which councillors voted themselves a massive 31% pay increase. Three Labour Councillors who voted for the increase now say that they have changed their mind and are now against the increase; all three are up for re- election next May.
